I haven't been there in many years, but just to the right of No Pigs, myself and Jamie Cunningham put up a ground up line with only one bolt called Hexmate. It's 5.10R. Sure hope no one has retro bolted the route.

it's still 10R.

No way the line I speak of is Hexmate as it feels more like 5.8 - and I'm confident Jamie wouldn't have bolted anything you FA'd without speaking to you. They seemed clear about that ethic in the October 2013 posts....

I climbed at Echo's Hone Wall recently and really enjoyed the lines. Thanks to the crew for making many of those climbs safer and super fun.  I reviewed the posts and photos from last October, compared them with the guidebook and I am confused mostly about the 3 routes that are all about 5.9ish - hoping someone can clarify.

From left to right I climbed:
1. A line of bolts that is right of No Pigs about 15-20 feet and runs up along a sort of small groove or right facing corner. SOTN description of Broken Dreams would match this, but maybe this is a totally new line? (felt like a soft 9 to me)
2. The next line over to the right was also fully bolted and climbed over a small roof/bulge at a weakness and the crux was at the small overlap above. This seems to match the SOTN description for Race Day - is that correct? The photo posted LOOKS like this climb but is said to be Rain Dance instead (maybe it is the angle of the photo that distorts it). The 2-bolt anchor was up on a large comfortable ledge.
3. The 3rd climb we did just to the right again went over a larger section of roof down low on huge jugs (bolt below roof and just over roof), then up to the top - I had to choose which anchor to go to - the left anchor, shared with the climb to the left or the anchor to the right and higher which I think is the Just Roofin' Around anchor.  Is this Rain Dance or a new line?

2 friendly local guys were climbing there and by then had made their way over to Just Roofiin Around and that was just to the right of the route we were climbing that has the low roof (not really what I would call an "overlap" as the guidebook implies.) So I'm pretty sure it was Rain Dance but not sure the photo and SOTL description matches.

NCO Takeoff is incredibly safe to climb now and super fun.  Sure glad you left No Pigs alone as it would feel silly with more bolts. Center Line could use new webbing and a couple of quicklinks - there was only one rusty link there so we left a 'biner to rap.

Anyway, thanks for any clarification if possible and thanks again for the hard work to make this cliff so fun!  And the ladders at the SI Wall are great, too!

not afraid to use lockers on the rope end either..

+++++
I've got a draw with a locker on the rope side.  I've used it about a dozen times in 10 years or so.
DAMN glad every time I had used it.
Maybe I will subst out the top biner for a locker too.

Damn...been a month since anyone's posted anything about beer!

If anyone is looking for a decent session IPA - White Birch Brewing Hop Session is pretty good. They're in Hooksett and you can probably get throughout the state. Their Belgian Pale Ale is good too.

Actually on Saturday I'm headed to the Granite State Brewers Association Beer Fest in Manchester (via a party bus!). 28 breweries - only NH! Looking forward to sampling some beers that I haven't had before - really looking forward to Schillings from Littleton since they've been mentioned here before.

And last but not least - someone picked me up some Narragansett Del's Summer Shandy from RI! Gonna have one after tonight's mountain bike ride!

Might not have internet access today so phone is best way to reach me.  Prefer a full day but will do a partial and some bouldering if you've got time constraints.

one time in the middle of the crux sequence at a spot where i had previously fallen I brushed the  rope end biner on a green camalot with my foot. the biner hit a protusion of rock,the gate opened and the rope popped out just like a majick trick.  it was 15 yeqrs ago but i think it may have been a wire gate? pretty certain it was a sport draw. getting old.. annother time just before my one and only leader fall on ice i kicked the biner on an ice screw and it unclipped from the rope. that time I had run out of slings and had just a single biner on the screw.

Damn straight i flip the bolt or pin end biner upside down for a critical piece. not afraide to use lockers on the rope end either..
